The climatic conditions, particularly the temperature and air humidity inside the orchard often play an underestimated role concerning the health of the plants and the quality specifications of the fruit. It is in regard to these specifications that the patented self-ventilating VOEN covers come into their own, as ventilation on a large scale can be achieved.
Especially at times of intensive solar radiation and extreme heat in the summer, the ventilation under the covers avoids the creation of heat pockets.
This prevents the cooking of the fruit, therefore ensuring that the fruit maintains its stability until the point of full ripeness or harvest. This circumstance is academically proven by measurements from the fruit growing regions in the South of Germany. Even customer’s own measurements in the fruit growing regions in England and Canada deliver the same results.
To that effect two main advantages of the VOEN system can be derived:
The automatic ventilation also stops the accumulation of condensation on the inner side of the covers and therefore a high level of humidity in the orchard. Because of this the pressure represented by pests and fungal diseases is very low, and results in a reduction of the use of pesticides.
Especially organic fruit growers have discovered this fact to their advantage, and choose a VOEN covering system.
